Woody Woodpecker Runs Rudd Off The Rails.

Soooo... Julia joins that illustrious group of female political leaders in Oz.

Such a shame that she wasn't actually elected, but it appears that that's an art that the women haven't learnt yet.

Let's see...

Carmen Lawrence, first Aussie State Premier of WA. Got the job after predecessor resigned.

Likewise Anna Bligh in Queensland and Joan Kirner, who put the finishing touches on John Cain's slash and burn premiership of Melbournistan.

Okay, so we've had women elected to run Territories as opposed to States, but in general, it's a pretty sorry tale for the political woman here.

I suspect that it's the Labor Party disease. All of these women, so many members of Emily's List, and they couldn't get elected to garbo, going on past and present experience.

Considering that the ALP is effectively a socialist organisation, it's no surprise. Merit doesn't have a whole lot of traction there, although bloodymindedness and pandering do.

Oh, and in case you don't believe that the ALP is not as supportive of individuals as you'd think in such an egalitarian environment of Oz, according to their own constitution, Julia and Co support:

(v) commitment to and participation in the international democratic socialist movement as
represented by the Socialist International; and
(w) recognition of the right of citizens to work for progressive changes consistent with the
broad principles of democratic socialism.

Personally, I wasn't aware that my country should abide by the rules of an organisation I disagree with and didn't elect.

I suspect that plenty of others are also unaware of exactly how far into our nation socialism has been spreading.

It's all rather tiresome and seriously gets my goat.

And as for the "Principles of Action"...

Principles of Action
4 The Australian Labor Party believes that the task of building democratic socialism is a cooperative
process that requires:
constitutional action through the federal and State Parliaments, municipal and other statutory
union action; and
• ongoing action by organised community groups.

The Long March continues.

People vote Labor why?

GILLARD will be different than these others. She will be a two term Prime Minister at least. She will destroy this country and do it with charm because she is a very intelligent and cunning Socialist politician.

SHE is extremely dangerous and I see no way of stopping her.

People vote Labor why?

Because they are inherently stupid and naive.

I recently found the answer to this rather vexing question. Recent DNA analysis toward this very question, under taken with a strict scientific protocol shows distinct differences in the DNA of left wing people.

Those with original thought and individuality have extra genes, that are missing in those who sheepishly follow an idiom. Thus left wing and right wing, I am sorry I can not give the site to visit for this research. I lost it but it was recent and real , maybe Google it. It sure explains a lot, had me buggered for most of my life why any one votes labour.

Because their incomes (i.e. welfare and handouts) depend upon it.

Yes, indeed, why do people vote Labor? I also ask why do people vote Greens? Read some of their policies:

How to destroy an economy and turn everything you believe in on its head.
